The small bays on the western side provide shelter in NW to N winds, while the two bays in the south-west end of the bay give best shelter in NW to N winds. Because there are a number of baches (holiday homes) in these bays, it is difficult to anchor with a line ashore without disturbing land owners.
The south-east end of the bay features a small cove with a house and a wharf. This cove is sheltered from all winds but is not deep close to shore. The owner’s moorings can make it difficult to anchor out of the wind.
The rest of this arm is good holding and gives reasonable shelter in winds from the S sector semi-circle. The bay shoals gently and it is best to keep at least 100 metres from the shore at the end of the bay.
